Welcome to Oasis Academy Longmeadow
We area a warm and welcoming community where children and adults "love, laugh and learn" together.
As a small school, we know every child as an individual and aim to offer an environment that fosters positive relationships, develops skills and creates a thirst for learning. Our children can expect to work with staff who care about them. All of our staff strive to provide for every child’s development to ensure that they flourish personally and academically. We aim for every child to gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to achieve their potential and continue as successful learners throughout their life.
We believe that we will support the success of all our children through building:
- A community which celebrates diversity and difference
- A curriculum that is engaging, relevant and challenging
- A staff team who are dedicated to supporting the children to be the very best that they can be
- A focussed learning environment with high aspirations based on a sense of purpose, engagement, fun and challenge
We are a community school and it is important to us that we serve the needs and interests of our community. We work hard to build partnerships with parents so that together we can provide the very best for our children.
At Oasis Academy Longmeadow we extend a very warm welcome to you. We encourage you to get involved with your child’s learning and Academy life through our Parent Forum meetings and FOALS (Friends of Oasis Academy Longmeadow).
We believe that by transforming learning we can transform lives. Together we can ensure that the children flourish.
Principal, Oasis Aacademy Longmeadow
As a small school we offer an environment where children feel part of a community that prides itself on caring for each other and fostering positive relationships
We believe in providing children with varied learning opportunities to ensure all children, regardless of ability, are able to learn and develop new skills
We are part of the South West region of academies within the Oasis family. Based in Bristol and Trowbridge we are a region of 9 academies both primary and secondary, lead by Julia Dauban and Phil Humphreys our Interim Regional Directors.
Before taking on the role of Interim Regional Director, Julia has been Principal at Oasis Academy Long Cross for five years. Moving the academy from Special Measures to Good in just two years, Julia's leadership has seen the school go from strength-to-strength. Results across the board have either matched or improved upon national average, with a cohort of approximately 60% pupil premium. This is something Julia is particularly proud of.
Prior to working at Oasis, Julia has worked in Bristol schools for 10 years. She has always had an interest in working with children with challenging behaviour, and has therefore made inclusion and behaviour a specialism within her career. For three years Julia worked in an international school in Stockholm, where the children at the time spoke 32 different languages. This was a great opportunity to ensure that appropriate provision was evident and success stories made.
Phil Humphreys is an expert educationalist with almost twenty years of experience in education, having led in an OFSTED rated ‘Outstanding’ school in Birmingham where he was the Deputy Headteacher at a time when the school won the TES leadership team of the year.
Mr Humphreys took over the large Southampton secondary Oasis Academy Mayfield in 2013, he transformed teaching and learning at the school, driving up pupil progress. Ofsted found the school to be ‘Good’ in all categories in 2016. Appointed Executive Principal and subsequently Deputy Regional Director, he took responsibility for Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill, supporting staff development and raising student attainment, developing a strong culture of collaboration.
In Bristol, we have:
- Oasis Academy Bank Leaze (primary)
- Oasis Academy Connaught (primary)
- Oasis Academy Long Cross (primary)
- Oasis Academy Marksbury Road (primary)
- Oasis Academy New Oak (primary)
- Oasis Academy Brightstowe (secondary)

In Trowbridge, we also have Oasis Academy Longmeadow, a primary school.
We are excited to say that we are developing our family in this region and welcome Oasis Academy Temple Quarter - our newest free school being built in the Temple Meads are of Bristol.
At Oasis we recognise that people are not two-dimensional beings; we are each a whole person with a broad range of aspirations and needs and these needs are interconnected. To truly help someone with their educational needs, it is vital to also be aware of their emotional needs, spiritual needs and economic needs.
As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive. We call our model for these communities ‘hub.’
